Book Review | 4 Shorts by Robert Bevan

Four short stories I’ve been waiting to read finally made it into Kindle Unlimited. I grabbed all of them as part of Robert Bevan’s 5D6 release where he rolls up 6 shorts into one book (the first two reviewed here). As usual, Mister Bevan proves himself the master of low brow humour. In these final four he delivers an astounding array of disgusting and hilarious scenarios for our hapless heroes to fight their way out of. Tossing the Salaad –...

Book Review | Hell’s Titties by Robert Bevan and Steve Wetherell

Book Review | Hell’s Titties by Robert Bevan and Steve Wetherell

Whaaaat? A  collaboration between two of my favourite authors – Robert Bevan and Steve Wetherell? Shut Up and Take My Money! Or more accurately shut up and take my Kindle Unlimited payment in about 8 week’s time. But still, how could I resist. Hell’s Titties, a small town nestled between the “twin peaks” of East and West Tittie in the Appalachian Mountains, is the unwitting town sitting atop an ancient evil. The Blurb: Nestled between two peaks in the foothills...

Book Review | So Not a Hero by S.J. Delos

Book Review | So Not a Hero by S.J. Delos

Hmmm, where to start. I grabbed So Not a Hero by SJ Delos because I’m going through a bit of a superhero kick at the moment and the story sounded interesting. It is, don’t get me wrong. The story and world-building is solid and enjoyable. The main character has a ton of back-story and issues she needs to work through and you begin rooting for her pretty much straight away. The Blurb: A reformed villain. After serving two years in...

The Haunted Vagina by Carlton Mellick III

Book Review | The Haunted Vagina by Carlton Mellick III

“Bizarro fiction? What’s that?” I thought to myself when I first heard the term. Of course, I needed to look up this previously unheard of genre, landing on suggestions. Most of them fall into the NSFW category, and I guess this one – The Haunted Vagina – does too, to a degree. Depends on how prudish your IT department is about the word ‘Vagina’. Most examples I found looked as if they were trying to outdo each other with outlandish...

Phil! A Hilarious Account of Everything by RP Momsen

Book Review | Phil! A Hilarious Account of Everything by RP Momsen

I thought I might like this given the sample read similar to Douglas Adams, but it quickly became apparent that the book was basically trying to copy everything of the Hitchhikers Guide. Almost as if the author had read it, forgot parts of it, then had a go at writing the exact same book. Just the things I noticed before giving up: The Guide-like asides, “Pan Universal Kumquat Juice” – I mean that’s not even trying to hide being a...

They Fight Three Giants

Book Review | 2 Shorts by Robert Bevan

Robert Bevan is an author I’ve been reading for years now. His Critical Failures books in the Caverns and Creatures series are some of the most re-read books on my Kindle. Between each Critical Failures books he puts out 6 short stories which eventually get bundled into their own six-pack. These are the most recent two which I read one after another (I was behind a little since it took a few weeks for them to get onto Kindle Unlimited)....

Goddamned Freaky Monsters by Rick Gualtieri

Book Review | Goddamned Freaky Monsters by Rick Gualtieri

I should preface this review with a <POSSIBLE SPOILERS> warning since Goddamned Freaky Monsters is book 5 in The Tome of Bill series. If you’ve not read the first four, maybe look away now. After reading the first 4 books in quick succession I decided a short break was in order before continuing with the series. That short break turned into 6 months as other books kept demanding my attention. But finally I’m back on the Bill train, having finished...

Uncanny Sally by W. Lawrence

Book Review | Uncanny Sally by W. Lawrence

Uncanny Sally, a short story by W. Lawrence who you may know from Synching Forward which sets up this universe. Reading Synching Forward isn’t a prerequisite for reading this as it works as a standalone novel, but if you have, you’ll have a deeper understanding on what drives our protagonist, Amara. The Blurb: Sergeant Agent Amara James of the Department of Homeland Defense is reassigned from her anti-terrorism task force to investigate a murder. A popular actress has been found dead...

The Fantastic Fable of Peter Able by Natalie Grigson

Book Review | The Fantastic Fable of Peter Able by Natalie Grigson

It’s tough being a fictional character. Peter, a now adult Boy Wizard, has been abandoned by his writer and left to fend for himself in the land of fiction. The Fantastic Fable of Peter Able by Natalie Grigson showed up during my Kindle Scout campaign as a previous winner. I enjoy tales of characters left behind so was keen to check this one out. Peter and his pals in this one, the cast of NPCs by Drew Hayes and so...

Book Review | Critical Failures V by Robert Bevan

Robert Bevan is someone I’ve been reading for a long time now, getting into his books a few years back and reading them all multiple times. His latest book in the series, Critical Failures V, has left me a little on the fence. While each book in the series so far has followed the standard formula of problem at start -> solved at end + new cliff-hanger (introduced to keep you wanting the next one), this one meandered along without much urgency...
